    Good morning , I would like to celebrate my daughter's 10th birthday. How can I surprise her at Disneyland and what we can book for her to celebrate am planning to come in 10 July .

    Hello again Rashed! Welcome back to planDisney.

    Since your preferred park day is almost here, be sure to purchase your admission ticket as soon as possible. Every member of your party will need a valid admission ticket and theme park reservation for your preferred park to enter and it is possible for parks and days to fill up. You won't want to wait until the day of your planned celebration to secure your admission.

    We've celebrated many special occasions, including birthdays, at the parks, so I know your daughter will have the best and most memorable birthday! And it's a big birthday, isn't it? My son is getting close to celebrating double digits too, and I know he'd be thrilled to celebrate at Disneyland Resort.

    I have some suggestions for celebrating. First, when you arrive, be sure to pick up a Complimentary Birthday Button for your daughter at City Hall on Main Street, U.S.A. in Disneyland Park or Guest Services on Buena Vista Street in Disney California Adventure Park. With her button on she will receive lots of best wishes on her special day. That's its own kind of Pixie Dust, and it's also a fun personalized souvenir of the day.

    You'll want to take all the pictures because you'll want plenty of memories of the special day. Disneyland Resort offers Disney's PhotoPass Service, which allows the whole group to get in the photo. I really appreciate that as the photographer in the family. It's currently complimentary with the purchase of Genie+, soon-to-be known as Lightning Lane Multi Pass, so you'll receive all the photo downloads from the day. This option allows Guests to book Lightning Lane Entrance return times for select Attractions. It can be selected when purchasing your tickets or added on after scanning into the parks for the day. The price you see on the app today, however, might not be the same on the day you visit if you don't buy in advance. It's also possible for Genie+ to sell out, so be sure to arrive early to lessen the chance it'll be unavailable. We always go with this option because we appreciate spending less time in queues and more time focused on enjoying our time together as a family in our favorite place.

    Another way we like to celebrate is with a special meal where we can enjoy each other's company in an immersive fun setting. Maybe a Character Dining Experience would be a good fit? Meeting your favorite Characters is always a treat. Or maybe a Table Service meal with a Mickey Celebration Cake to mark the occasion sounds like the perfect way to party? These cakes can be ordered in advance or might be available when you arrive at select locations. Dining reservations can be made up to 60 days in advance and popular locations fill up quickly. If you'd like to secure a dining reservation, be sure to check and book yours soon.

    I hope your daughter has the happiest birthday in the Happiest Place on Earth!
